Benefits of Digital HID™ (DHID™) Lighting Retrofits

Retrofitting existing High Wattage HID lamp fixtures with more energy efficient and better performing DHIDTM ballasts benefits your project:

– DHIDTM Retrofit lighting solutions provide Industry the shortest Return On Investment
– Re-using, retrofitting existing magnetic ballast/lamp fixtures is environmentally responsible
Instant 40-50% energy savings, beyond 60% energy savings with smart dimming
– DHIDTM ballast technology improves HID lamp lifetime by 50%
– 90-95% lumen maintenance, originally specified light levels always remain (no relamping)
– Eliminate the long term expenses  and waste of lamp maintenance with Long Life Lamp solutions
– 10+ years, maintenance free solution, 40,000+ hours life MH, 70,000+ hours life HPS solutions

How does it work?  Old magnetic ballast HID lamp systems lose their light output over time, eventually losing over half of their initial light output.  Although light output has decreased, the magnetic ballast system continues to  consume the same amount of energy.

Accendo recommends the replacement of higher Wattage magnetic ballasts with lower Wattage DHIDTM ballasts.  Below is a typical Industrial high bay light fixture retrofit example.  The traditional 400W magnetic HID lamp system is upgraded/retrofitted with a 250W DHIDTM ballast, re-using the same fixture, only a new DHIDTM ballast and new matching Wattage lamp is installed.

Replace high Wattage magnetic HID ballasts with lower Wattage DHIDTM ballasts for instant 40%+ energy savings.  Application Examples; downloadable PDF Application Sheets (click):
